FTSE Multi-Asset Core Infrastructure Index Series

The FTSE Multi-Asset Core Infrastructure Index Series is a comprehensive, multi-asset, multi-currency index diversified across three FTSE Russell defined infrastructure sectors. The Index is designed to reflect the performance of infrastructure equity and debt securities worldwide, including coverage of Developed and Emerging Equity markets, as well as Investment-Grade and High-Yield debt markets across several major currencies, from both corporate and quasi-government issuers. The index series covers a broad array of sectors, countries and currencies, and sub-indexes are available across a variety of sectorizations. The index series benefits from FTSE Russell’s two step approach to defining “core” infrastructure, which considers both industry classification and revenue derived from infrastructure core activities. The FTSE Multi-Asset Core Infrastructure Index Series is the first bottom-up multi-asset index series launched by FTSE Russell, which is constructed using security level returns from both equity and fixed income.

Combining listed-equity and public-debt infrastructure securities enable market participants to improve their opportunity set across the capital structure, and potentially offers improved risk-adjusted returns and diversification benefits to a single-asset class approach.

The index Series builds on the established equity FTSE Infrastructure Index Series, and FTSE Fixed Income Core Infrastructure Index Series, providing investors with a comprehensive, cross-asset solution.
